veceo (708) - CROATIA - MAR 19, 2015
Pitch black color, average sized brownish head. Aroma of smoke chocolate, coffee, roast, sweetness, hint of some fruitiness. Full body, lively carbonation. Taste is full of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt. Relatively sweet with bitterish finish with cocoa and dark chocolate. Some acidic notes here and there. Chili is barely noticeable, too bad. Thick as hell. Good stuff.

Skinnyviking (7491) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle. High creamy and lasting light brown head. Pitch black body. Sweet malt coffee liquorice aroma. First impression of the flavor was of salt. Secondly bitter sweet roasted malt coffee liquorice with low carbonation and a long finish. Alcohol present but not too much of a good thing.
